The main goal of TransLocale is the aid of localizing scripts written for the
Hollywood interpreter.
Localization means that the text strings in the program are changed to
translated ones, so the program
can communicate in the user's preferred language.

Translating a program can be a lot of work even if it is designed for multi
language from the start.
Mantaining the translation is another tough job for new versions of source

On Amiga we have a well designed locale system from the 90's which Hollywood is
fully support, but offers a new format too broadening the features.

The two ways of creating a multi-language program:

1. Different executables per language
2. One executable, different language files

TransLocale helps to maintain both type of translations and automatically
generates localized programs from source files.

Currently it lacks documentation, but it has a "Buddy System" reachable from the
menu to run a guided tour on main features.
That guide contains an example source too, so it can be tried without any
additional material.

Running a source certainly requires the main Hollywood system.

There are some unimplemented ideas for future improvements:
- automatically handle  at includes
- translation database                                        
- automatic translation
- recognize and exclude file names

This is a password protected evaluation version. The current password is
"Luthien" which will expire on new releases or by time. The password checking is
done by accessing online, so without internet, there is no luck running this
